Boys basketball: Neillsville at Columbus Catholic, today 7:30 p.m.; vs. Augusta, Friday 7:30 p.m. - The most surprising team in the area, the Warriors have a daunting task ahead of them. After winning just three games last season and entering the final days of January with a 16-1 record and tied with Augusta for first place in teh Cloverbelt Conference-East Division. This week Neillsville can sieze control of the Cloverbelt Conference-East Division, but it won't be easy. Led by do-everything guard Matt Dux, the Warriors will face two stiff tests this week. Tuesday the Warriors travel to Columbus to face the Dons, who are coming off a huge win over previously unbeaten Augusta. And Friday Augusta travels to Neillsville in a clash for Cloverbelt-East supremacy.

Girls basketball: Colby at Loyal, Thursday 7:30 p.m. - These two teams are very similar. Both have very balanced scoring on offense and both teams like a slow-down game in the high-30, low-40 point totals. Sarah Gamillo leads the Hornets, avaraging 10 points per game and Loyal is paced by Missy Benz (9 ppg). This game should be close the whole way. A win by the Greyhounds would put them in the upper echelon (top-3) of the conference, but a loss would give both the Hornets and Loyal five conference losses and jumble the race even more, as third through ninth place is separated by just two games.

Girls basketball: Medford at Mosinee, 7:30 p.m., tonight - Another game with conference implications. Medford sits at 6-1, spearheaded by Katie Messmen and Shealyn Strebig, both averaging over 11 points per game. The Raiders are a game behind unbeaten Northland Pines in the Great Northern Conference. Mosinee, though, has just two conference losses and has an eye on Medford's second place perch in the GNC.
